Marshak discusses “mixed situations" in which both teaching models are used, rightfully or wrongfully, and goes on to cite examples of "nontraditional college programs which must conform to university requirements with respect to examinations, grading and the like..." (p. 81). This approach may violate the pure andragogical model because external evaluations may be imposed and some learning may be dictated, resulting in a case of unmet adult learner needs. Malcolm Knowles’ (1977) developed the paradigm of andragogy as we know it today (see Table 1). Knowles’ work is described as pivotal in terms of a shift in the educational paradigm. Knowles defined andragogy as “the art and science of helping adults learn” (1980, page 43), and claimed that there were four critical andragogical assumptions of adult learners which differ from the assumptions of pedagogy (Knowles, 1977).

STEREOTYPING MANYA WADHWA 2012144 As mentioned in my previous journal, after researching into human thinking that is not supported by a critical analysis, it was found that the human brain tends to wrap itself around the popular public opinion, prejudices, stereotypes etc. The worst part about this is that the people tend to believe in these without knowing enough about it, or without even giving it a second thought. I initially thought that stereotypes and prejudices were something similar. However, after class and after reading about it I realized that they are pretty different. A stereotype is about a group or a community or an action.
In other words, those students tend to do their assignments or homework as late as possible before they meet the deadlines of those tasks. The behaviour is named "academic procrastination". Academic procrastination can be described as "unnecessarily delaying academic activities, that one ultimately intends to complete, to the point of creating emotional discomfort"(Solomon & Rothblum 505). Academic procrastination is quite popular in today's colleges, which has already become a wide-spread phenomenon. In Denız, M. Engin's article "An Investigation of Academic Procrastination, Locus of Control, and Emotional Intelligence", he points out that "Procrastination is the universal weakness of people and a problem of arranging oneself in this way.
A Refutation of “Are Colleges Worth the Price of Admission?” Andrew Hacker and Claudia Dreifus set out on a mission to answer the question of “Are colleges worth the price of admission?” They argue that colleges are taking on too many roles and doing none of them well, losing track of the basic mission to challenge the minds of young people. One of the many problems, they claim, is that students are enrolling in too many vocational majors instead of the liberal arts such as philosophy, literature and the physical sciences. Not only do they title this claim “Make students use their minds”, they proceed to further slight vocational majors by stating: “We’d like to persuade them that supposedly impractical studies are a wiser use of college and ultimately a better investment. The undergraduate years are an interlude that will never come again, a time to liberate the imagination and stretch one’s intellect without worrying about a possible payoff.” (180). This is self-contradictory in itself.
One aspect that enforced my decision to look at an artist, the likes of ‘Andres Serrano’ was that of controversy and the term ‘abject’. I felt that his work relates to that of earlier work of my own, and work I would look in to again, just not at present, as I feel that this first year at university, for me is about experiment. The term abject, to me simply means to shock the viewer, however there are numerous examples of it. Often its is used to describe groups, the likes of homosexuals, race, handicapped, convicts and poor people. This term originates in the works of Julia Kristeva.
